Moving to Angola, Africa
Are you thinking of moving to Angola? Angola is proving more and more popular with expats looking for adventure and generous salaries. Angola is one of Africa’s largest oil-producing countries and Angola remains rich in raw materials (petroleum and diamonds). The economy in Angola is now one of the fastest growing in the world. International relationships with countries like South Africa, China and Portugal are paying off and Angola’s infrastructure is improving year on year. Safety is less of a problem these days but expats must still be wary and should be very cautious about traveling to areas outside of Luanda, especially to the Cabinda region, which is not advisable.

Safety remains a concern with expats choosing secure, well constructed and maintained properties, usually in compounds, this pushes up rental costs.
